BOCA RATON, Fla. (AP) _ A South Florida university is preparing for the national spotlight that comes with hosting a presidential debate.

The final debate between President Barack Obama and his Republican rival Mitt Romney will be held Oct. 22 at Lynn University in Boca Raton.

The school with 2,100 students is preparing to host 2,500 members of the media for a debate expected to draw up to 70 million TV viewers.

Hosting the debate is expected to cost the school roughly $4.5 million.
